Knock, knock, knocking on wooden floors — this wacky walking ReBot is pieced together from a tennis racket, hammer, and the rear wheels of a tricycle.
+ Fast and easy to build
+ Demonstrates wheels, slider cranks, and motors in action
+ Powered by an electric motor
+ Combine the parts from different ReBotz kits to build your own creations.
In the world of the ReBotz, old tech and discarded junk are given new life - a cracked smartphone, a forgotten waffle iron, a beat-up skateboard and some old skis. This squad of four loveable robot pals springs into action from a heap of junkyard parts. Quickly piece together a motorized model of each ReBot from a set of easy-to-assemble parts. Then, switch them on and watch how each robot moves in a unique and wacky way. Collect all four kits and mix up the interchangeable parts to make rebooted robotic creations. These science-fiction models provide an opportunity for some real science lessons. Conduct experiments with the different simple machines and mechanisms that make the robots move, including cams, springs, sliders, cranks, motors, wheels, and levers. For ages 6 and up.
